Do any of the censuses Simon and co. appear on indicate what language/s they spoke? I'm not sure when that question was introduced to the Scottish censuses. I'm just curious to see if any of them spoke Gaelic but it's probably the wrong area of the Highlands.

I think the census from 1891 shows if they spoke Gaelic you would need to view the original census on Scotlands People ..The census in Canada 1916  shows speaks English

I spent some time yesterday, in Strathconon, with the Session Clerk of the Contin Church of Scotland who confirmed that the Church Records of his church, along with most other C of S churches, are with the NLS in Edinburgh.

All the pre-1855 registers of the Church of Scotland parishes are in the care of the Registrar General (not the National Library of Scotland) in Edinburgh and the contents are available online at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk.

When statutory civil registration was introduced in 1855, the legislation included a power to the Registrar General to collect all the C of S registers for safe keeping, and an obligation on the C of S to hand them over to the RG. Therefore there is no point in going to any Church of Scotland if you want to look up a baptism or proclamation of banns before 1855.

The surviving C of S registers from 1855 onwards remain with the churches.

The Roman Catholic registers, and many of the free churches' registers, are also available online.

The Episcopal Church's surviving registers are either still in the churches or in diocesan, local or university archives.
